ManateeGag: Lucky LaRue: Conclusion: Venus' climate is not the result of global warming.

Venus started pretty warm to begin with.


And here I always thought that the"greenhouse effect" was a process by which heat is trapped in an atmosphere.  I guess that doesn't happen on Venus because free market.

Tyson assures us right away that we are to "question everything" so we have to ask why he thinks Venus is the way it is due to the greenhouse effect - which is another way of saying global warming. Venus is almost 900 degrees Fahrenheit and the clouds are sulfuric acid. Even the most aggressive climate change models and their 20-foot ocean rises don't predict that for Earth, no matter how many Chevy Volts we don't buy.

TheOmni: But the sound in space section of this article seems to be thrown in so that it could have one thing correct to try and lend credence to the rest of his absurd ramblings. And I don't even know where to begin on that last part. Does he not know how metaphors work?


I think that if he's serious about the sound in space thing, he has a world-class case of Asperger's, one worthy of lengthy study at a major research facility, a book, and a movie of the week.

If he's serious about that last part, he's probably suffered a stroke.

I was happily(?) reading that blog when my hand directed the mouse to close the tab.

Apparently my hand is smarter than I am (after a few gins).

Feepit: Joe USer: You observe, you theorize, and you tell others.

He didn't observe or theorize. He took Copernicus' theory, ran it through his religious pollution machine, and spat out crazy. Then he told others.


Now I know why this case sounds so familiar.  Replace "Copernicus' theory" with "quantum mechanics", and I might be at least a bit sympathetic to the idea of burning Deepak Chopra at the stake.

nmrsnr: Now. Water vapor occasionally breaks down to O2 and H2, when it does this, the Hydrogen gas is light enough to escape Venus's gravity, leaving forever. There is very little Hydrogen left on Venus to make water vapor from anymore.
But don't trust me (or my bachelor's degree in astronomy):


Women are from Venus. Women are getting hotter. If science has taught me anything, it is that the only way to stop global warming is by filling the atmosphere with Axe black chill.

Lucky LaRue: There's a whole lot of herpaderp in that blog.

Venus is almost 900 degrees Fahrenheit and the clouds are sulfuric acid. Even the most aggressive climate change models and their 20-foot ocean rises don't predict that for Earth, no matter how many Chevy Volts we don't buy.

Conclusion:  Venus' climate is not the result of global warming dinosaurs.

I somehow got to number 5

Wherein he unironically presents an argument that the universe wasn't created in a year, as if he lives in a world where metaphors and comparisons do not exist

Thank you, Subby. By bringing this to us, you have added to the mounting evidence that devolution is possible

As for the writer of the blog post...

Seriously? #3

There is no sound in space

Why can we hear his spaceship when he is exploring the cosmos? Yes, it is a "spaceship of the imagination".

It's imaginary. Do we get to decide what people imagine now?

 but I would hope Tyson's imagination is more scientifically accurate than that of a teenager playing "Mass Effect."

The target audience, you mean.

You realize that this idiot probably would argue that the so-called "greenhouse effect" isn't responsible for keeping greenhouses warm, either.

Fun fact about Chinese astrologists and scientists in antiquity. They felt that models and metaphors couldn't capture the real thing's essence well enough to be studied or used with accuracy, and that very likely prevented exploration and research into astronomical modeling, scale experimentation, etc.

Apparently he believes that dividing the sum of all time by a single number to produce a scaled model removes it's chi and prevents us from understanding the truth.
